well,

knowone cares but the fuel econ, servicing, price + tax on an Evo makes it for most a weekend car only.

the safety is greater in the megane, the looks arent as macho but hey if you wanna look like a greased up weight lifter on Baywatch thats fine buy an Evo.

power to weight is important, nothing kills accelaration more than weight. apart from 4wd trans losses :lol:

the megane cup weights 1350kg
the evo 1475kg

the megane 270hp + no translosses
the Evo 260 + trans losses

the megane would be quicker once rolling past 40mph its fact.

as for a 300hp evo well sure a bit quicker again some minor transloss i guess but how much faster ??? enough to make a 270bhp 257lbft 1350kg fwd look stupid ... err NO.

must add also of course 270bhp is the remap, with the new FMIC and exhaust on i.e like the evo boys do, some better induction 300hp is possible all at a fairly cheap price once again considering the Evo`s seriously high running costs.

i think cornering on the evo/imprezas due to awd and some cleaver diffs is amazing but thats not put to practical advantage unless a.) the roads are wet and b.) you can drive your evo/scooby to a level where you amazing tyres and suspension arent enough and the computers and 4wd have to kick in, if you cant then there isnt any real reason why an EVO couldnt be kept up with in the typical short lived confrontations you experience on UK roads, if you can then your probably driving at speeds likely to cause death and destruction

just my 2pence

have a look at the mitusbishi website at all the quality cars on there
:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

apart from the ugly but stunning evo they have truely horrible vehicles for sale move you mouse onto the "new cars" bit and just try find something thats sexy

at least reno have some interesting and diffferent stuff i.e 182 trophy, megane F1, 225cup, trophy, V6 255 3.0 rwd, Velsatis, Scenic etc..

ohh an evo 260 is around £20,000 a megane is avaliable at £14,250 new !!! and has lots of stuff which people find usefull for day to day driving and living with i.e electric folding mirrors. in fact the full glass front rear panoramic sunroof may not be a hardcore track day feature lol but its nice to have these options as well as keyless entry cruise,climate,type pressure sensors and lots of cup holders :lol:
